Public consultation on new CEC project to improve air quality for environmental justice

During its 2021 Regular Session, the CEC Council announced a new large-scale initiative to mitigate ‘black carbon’ for the improvement of air quality and support environmental justice in a local context. Following this announcement, the CEC Joint Public Advisory Committee (JPAC) is seeking comments and suggestions from citizens across North America on a new CEC project under this initiative that will seek to improve air quality in local communities, by supporting them to better document and mitigate sources of black carbon and particulate matter (PM2.5) emissions.
